Breath and Hammer features Krakauer and Tagg’s original compositions and fresh arrangements of “simple songs” by such composers as New York–based visionary John Zorn, Syrian clarinetist Kinan Azmeh, and Cuban percussionist Roberto Rodríguez. The duo’s influences range from interlocking African drumming patterns to romantic symphonic music, minimalism, and klezmer. These diverse and seemingly disparate musical inspirations intermingle and transform into something entirely new: a hybrid art form that bridges the cultures of the past with new work that looks towards the future.
